Lionel NEW 21 inch passenger cars -

J Daddy posted:

Anyone get their new Lionel passenger car sets in? .  .  .  Pictures please!

I purchased the UP variant so I will be waiting a tad longer.

Same here - on both counts. Very keen to see the advertised differences between these cars and the original run. And if there's any difference in the interior details I'm particularly interested in that. I know better than to expect passengers but a long time ago Lionel (in the person of Mike R.) stated the later run would be more "prototypical" than the first inside as well as out.

I believed most of the cars are on the water, as Dave Olson mentioned in a thread that I created. 

 

  • Southern Pacific: Here
  • Amtrak: Here
  • NYC ESE #2: Here

 

  • Pennsy Broadway limited: On the water
  • Penn Central: On the water
  • CSX: On the water
  • AFT: On the water
  • UP Excursion: On the water
  • Conrail: On the water
  • Burlington Northern: On the water
  • ACL: To be built still

I ventured into the CSX Theater car and the CSX Stationsounds Diner car, hopefully they will come in February, lots of Train items came late December, early January...Wow...I will post pictures when they arrive....

I really wish we had a choice to get the 18 inch car, instead of the 21 inch cars. Reason being, the 18 inch cars look better on my layout....Not Complaining, 21 inch looks ok to.  Great thread...

The ever reliable Charles Ro website shows the SP, Amtrak and ESE cars as available from10 Jan. From past experience that usually means when they are shipped from Lionel to Ro and the onward shipping happens fast. So these cars might only just have entered Ro’s customer delivery chain and other dealers may not have their consignments yet. So although hope springs eternal I am not counting on seeing any of these this weekend.

Nope sit way to high for me, maybe this release will be better. Be nice to get the Amtrak but I have to see it first. I'm spoiled by Atlas CZ cars.

I agree with that.  The Atlas California Zephyr cars are the standard by which all others are judged.  Feature for feature, inch by inch and details vs details... Atlas is hard to beat.  Even the tinted windows and internal lighting are best in class.

The date quoted on Charlie Ro's website is the date he expects the cars to arrive at his store.  Upon arrival the website is usually updated very quickly to say "in stock".  And since that hasn't happened yet for any of the 21" passenger cars you mentioned, it's quite likely they still haven't arrived.

Maybe next week?

The last time I had a pre-order with Ro the item shipped out to me before the website was updated. But yes, and in line with what you say, you'd expect an update by now if Ro had actually had any of these in.

Next week? I hope so but it's got to the point where I'll only believe it when I see it.

And the Sp, AMTRAK, and NYCESE were confirmed to be here! So they must be on a truck somewhere.

The truck(s) in question seem to be lost. These must be the most elusive passenger car models ever made by Lionel.

Still no sightings??? Maybe one of the improvements over the first run of these 21" ABS cars is that the new run is invisible!

Or in the new station-sounds diners, instead of the ¨We have arrived sequence,¨ the station announcement could say - ¨Attention passengers, WERE FINALLY HERE.¨

 

This whole 21 passenger cars situation reminds me of the original ¨Casey Jones¨ cartoon.
